You Pay: $7.99
Product Highlights
  • Absorbs Ultraviolet Light
  • Reduces Bluish Cast of Daylight
  • General Protective Filter
  • ColorCore Technology

The Tiffen 52mm UV Haze 1 Filter is a general use, clear filter that helps to absorb ultraviolet light and reduce the bluish cast of daylight. This filter is especially useful when photographing at high altitudes or around bodies of water. No additional coloration or contrast is provided, allowing you to pair this filter with others.

The UV filter is also useful as a general protective filter to leave on lenses at all times. Filters help to reduce dust and moisture from reaching your lens element and provide additional protection in case of drops or situations where scratching could occur.

Tiffen filters are made using ColorCore technology; a process that involves laminating the filter substrate between 2 pieces of optical glass, grinding flat to a tolerance of 1/10,000th of an inch, then mounting to precision metal rings.

Absorbs most ultraviolet light and reduces bluish cast of daylight.

    Using a UV Filter as a lens protector is common knowledge among photographers. Using the Tiffen Haze-1 filter on my lenses has been a great decision. The Haze-1 cuts out a significant portion of the UV spectrum. While our eye's can't see it, the sensor in the camera is partly sensitive to this spectrum. The filter removes the UV discoloring under certain shooting conditions.

    The cost of these filters make them affordable to keep on each of my lenses, so that I don't even need to worry about changing the filter from one to the other.

    Comments about Tiffen 52mm UV Haze 1 Filter:

    Screws on easily and stays put until I want to take it off. Seems to cause flare on my 50mm 1.8 II when shooting things like sunsets. For cheap protection of the front element, it's worth having it the rest of the time. The price is right for my cheap lens.

        I use this Tiffen filter to protect my expensive lenses. There is no distortion in the glass and the quality of construction of the filter is quite good considering the price. The filter fits the lens housing without issues.

              I'm using this filter with my new Canon 60mm macro lens. Since I'll be getting in very close to subjects I wanted this filter to serve as insurance against damaging the lens. It does that well.

                      Nothing bad to say about this filter. Tiffen makes a fine product and filters are a must for all lenses. There was no downside. I have a basic UV filter on all of my lenses at all times to avoid scratching and damage to the actual glass.

                          I bought this filter instead of the NC filter , works ok outdoors, difference between a NC and this is unnoticeable in bright light, remove if your using a circular polariser.
                          Should have gotten the NC instead.

                            UV filters are the most inexpensive way to protect your lenses. Of course, you want them to be good quality, so they don't take away from the quality of the glass.
